The Tracking Board broke the news earlier this year when Ferrell, McKay, and Jessica Elbaum nabbed the rights to the article for their Gloria Sanchez Productions production banner. Ellison and Chelsea Barnard of Annapurna will join the trio as producers.
The article, published in December of 2015, offers an in-depth look at a group of ex-strippers who, in a real-life Robin Hood tale, hustled “wealthy jerks” and “disgusting perverts” by luring them into hotel rooms, drugging them, and maxing out their credit cards.
Annapurna recently produced Richard Linklater’s Everybody Wants Some!!. Their upcoming projects include Downsizing as well as Seth Rogen’s R-rated comedy Sausage Party.
Gloria Sanchez Productions is an arm of Gary Sanchez Productions, which was founded by McKay and Ferrell. The production banner recently released the romantic comedy Sleeping With Other People starring Alison Brie and Jason Sudeikis.
